Spaces are open in this 0.5 credit seminar, led by Charles Barber and Sean McCann. The seminar aims to give students the chance to consider some of the complexities of public policy related to criminal justice, incarceration, and rehabilitation by meeting and talking with professionals and activists whose work focuses in various ways on the criminal justice system. Among the guests who will visit the seminar this semester will be former inmates who now work as counselors and advocates; a former prosecutor; a public defender; a litigator whose firm specializes in civil actions on behalf of victims of police and prison abuse; a former prison official; and a prison abolition activist especially concerned with the experience of LGBTQ prisoners.
